About this event
One of the greatest parenting challenges in this unprecedented time of technology is teaching boundaries and good sense when it comes to screen time and social media. One thing we know for sure is, we can’t do it alone.

Nationally recognized psychiatrist, speaker, author, and educator, Blaise Aguirre, MD, will join us virtually to share:

This is the second of a 3-part series led by experts in the fields of psychology, medicine, and education.
This is an open invitation for parents in our community, with children of all ages, to unite, learn, and share ideas on how we can navigate these critical issues, together. All are welcome but space is limited.
